The classic swedish meatballs were great. Loved the way each side was served in its own dish. The creamy sauce for the meatballs was delicious! The atmosphere was nice and cozy. This place is way better than Meatballs-for the people restaurant.

Expectations were on a high level and the service was according them. Toas skagen was excellent but but meatballs were disappointment.
